Hair Transplant is a surgical procedure to treatment partial hair loss, eyebrow loss or partial beard loss. The hair follicles which will be transplanted are taken from the back area of the head where the hair is dense and resistant to the hormones which trigger the hair loss.
There are two commonly used methods for hair transplantation : FUE(Follicular Unit Extraction) andFUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
In the FUT method, a small strip of tissue from the back of the head is removed and donor area is closed with sutures.The hair follicles are harvested from the strip by a scalpel. FUT provides the greatest number of grafts to be transplanted in a single session however it lost its popularity after FUE method because it can result in a linear scar in the back of the head.
In the FUE method, hair follicles are taken from the donor area via micro motor or extraction needle as small as 0,5 – 0,9 mm.Therefore, donor area heals quickly and no visible, does not have any visible and permanent scar. Also with methodconvenient to transplant body hairs. FUE method is prefered in our clinic for hair transplant.
Operation time is approximately 5-6 hours. Donor area (back of the head) are shaved and infiltrated with local anesthesia. Areas to be treated are shaved and localized by local anesthesia. Then hair follicles are collected one by one using the Micro Motor. 3000-4000 grafts can be collected with this method. After enough hair follicles are removed, transplantation is performed to the recipient area. There is no need to stay in hospital after hair transplantation. After hair transplantation, new hair growth begin to appear after about 3 months and the exact result is obtained in 1 year. FUE hair transplant are extremely long lasting and the most successful hair loss treatments currently available.
